Wolfgang Kirsch took the opportunity to get to know the modern transmission and tractor factory as well as the research and development department in Marktoberdorf. And he was visibly impressed. "It was a lot of fun," he said at the end of his visit to the factory. After a kick-off with the complete Fendt Managing Board, he started his visit in the transmission factory together with Ekkehart Gläser (Vice President and Managing Director Production), Karl-Heinz Welz (Director, Manufacturing Transmissions Marktoberdorf) and Dr. Jan Cachay (Head of Process Planning, Work Preparation & Maintenance Transmissions Marktoberdorf).
Next was the visit in the tractor factory with Ekkehart Gläser and Peter Bebersdorf (Director, Manufacturing Tractors Marktoberdorf). The last stop of the visit was a tour through the research and development department where Dr. Heribert Reiter (Vice President and Managing Director Research & Development, Purchase & Customer Service) and Walter Wagner (Vice President, Engineering Fendt Tractors) continued the tour with Wolfgang Kirsch. "That was an impressive glimpse into the future of motor technology. When you think of agricultural engineering, you don't immediately think of electric technologies. This is where Fendt is certainly ahead in tractor technology," said Wolfgang Kirsch.
